I haven't noticed better memory usage with FF at all. It's still a pig.

I did a test a while back between FF and IE and IE used so much less memory it wasn't even funny. I miss the old days of FF when it really was fast and light. That was probably, version 1.0 and earlier.

It's pretty fast and light these days again, it's load time is slightly slower than Chrome but recently it started besting it in some memory usage tests. I think V4-5 were the really bad days in terms of bloat. If you have an old profile that can add a lot of cruft, try what Creston suggested because it can make a world of difference.

Verno that is good to know but I have to express a little skepticism that that will actually pan out as you say. We'll know in 3 months time I suppose!

I probably didn't explain it well the first time, my bad. The extended release will have security updates and everything until the next EXTR which will likely be a long ways away. The rapid release schedule will continue but people can effectively "opt out" now which is good for IT departments and people who care way too much about version numbers.
